The Hotel and their rooms are above and beyond what I expected. Every datail is first class, from the front desk to the Bath robes to the coffee makers! If you get a chance to stay there DO SO ! The rooms are spacious as are their bathrooms. My wife and I loved the whole experience of staying there.

Stayed in Tuscany Suite- impressive, elegant, and restful. The room was clean and beautiful. It was my sister and bro-in-law's wedding anniversary, the housekeeping staff placed rose petals in their bed and chocolates with couples teddy bear. Awesome to the max! I will definitely stay here again.

Great casino and the food choices are incredible. The pool and spa are great and they have great concerts all your long. The casino is better than reno or las Vegas. Its close by and a too notch resort. I highly recommend this place. The rooms are incredible.

Had a girls mini getaway at Thunder Valley and it was excellent! The rooms are incredibly comfortable - the beds amazing and the bath tub is to die for. We spent 2 nights and dined at High Steaks both nights. Also spent time out at the pool and rented a cabana. Service everywhere except the pool was impeccable. Would definitely... More

We loved our one bedroom suite. We had a view of the pool which was just opened for the Summer Season. It (the pool) looks great! The suite had separate sleeping/ living areas and the largest shower I've ever seen. It also features 2 big screens, a powder room, and a wet bar. This is the perfect place for a... More

Based on the room itself,it was a quiet night of sleep and the bed was very comfortable with beautiful linen and many pillows.There was ample space to sit down and relax to make a cup of joe with the coffeemaker in the room. The bathroom is spacious,it included a shower,separate bathtub and the toilet area has a door for privacy.... More

This hotel seems great. The casino sends you pro toons for free rooms, but if you try to actually book one they're never available. Seems suspicious to me. Definitely not impressed. Showed up thinking I could use my promotional free room and was told there was occupancy, but the free ones aren't available and there's people with higher status than... More

This weekend stay turned out to be a nice surprise. I had been warned that Thunder Valley was very "smokey". The casino and surrounding restaurants are smokey, as is the elevator, but the rooms and hallways smell very clean and fresh. There is a smoke-free casino, but you have to walk through the smokey casino to get there. Our check-in... More

My company had their annual holiday banquet at this site. As a member of the planning committee I must say how absolutely disappointed I was, especially considering the price we had to pay. The lack of organization and communication among employees was baffling. It was extremely difficult to get ahold of our event organizer on the day of the event,... More
